The new government coalition that will take control of Germany announced on Wednesday November 24 that it wants to legalize cannabis. The controlled sale of cannabis in « Approved stores » will be reserved « To adults », announces the government contract presented by the three coalition parties.
This mini-revolution in the country « Will make it possible to control quality, prevent the transmission of contaminated substances and guarantee the protection of young people », specifies the document, adding that « The social impact of the law » would be evaluated after four years.
The new coalition between Social Democrats, Greens and Liberals also wants to develop “drug checking” operations, intended to verify that drugs are not cut with other substances.
Germany had already given the green light in 2017 to cannabis for therapeutic use.
